The Denver Center Alliance (DCA) is a lovely group of ladies (and a few men) who love the theater and love helping fundraise for the Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA). Every spring they gather to celebrate their amazing accomplishments, and this year is no different.
Outgoing president, Pam Sletten , reported that the DCA raised well over $1 million through fundraisers this past year. Ten committees with over 100 women work tirelessly to promote, sponsor, advocate and further the cause for the theater.
Sletten had the distinct pleasure of introducing Terri Fisher, the 2017-2018 recipient of the Donald R. Seawell Volunteer of the Year Showstopper Award. According to Sletten, “Terri had my back all year. She constantly checked in with me to make sure I was doing OK and was always there to pitch in and help out. Terri made DCA better, and she made me better.” Congratulations Terri for this prestigious award.
Jennifer Dechtman enthusiastically accepted the presidency for the 2018-2019 year. The committee and event chairs were also named and introduced.
Mariette Moore, Lana Cordier Shelton, Reema Alsayegh and Kirsten Teall. This group of ladies is the new young contingency and will take DCA well into the future.
Jen Taylor, Patricia Villegas and Debbie LaBrant-Hartung. Debbie says, “The best ‘Girl Gang’ group in town.
Adrienne Ruston Fitzgibbons, Sharon Gelt, Diane Sweat and Katie Grassby. Katie comments, “Diane is my mom, and I’ve grown up with these ladies. It’s so much fun to now be a part of this group.”
Kay Burke and Keri Christiansen say, “We are both ‘former’ presidents and it feels so good to be here without president responsibilities.”
Jodi Asarch and Jennifer Dechtman have been friends since kindergarten. Jennifer is the incoming president of DCA.
